The Best Places for a Uganda Safari

Murchison Falls National Park

Murchison Falls National Park is the largest protected area in Uganda and one of the oldest national parks in Africa. Here live lions, African buffalos, elephants, a special antelope species as well as the rare Rothschild giraffe. With some luck even leopards can be observed. The eponymous Murchison waterfalls plunge through a rocky gorge just seven meters wide into the depths. At its foot, countless crocodiles, who live from the falling fish, live.

Queen Elizabeth National Park

Named after Queen Elizabeth of England, the park combines a variety of fascinating landscapes. In addition to tropical rainforest, open savannah, dense papyrus swamps and crater landscapes, the two lakes of the East African Rift Valley are also found here. The Ishasha sector within the Queen Elizabeth National Park is also home to a very special kind of lion. The local wildcats climb trees, a behavior absolutely untypical for lions.

Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

The rare southern white rhinoceroses live in this protected area. These were already threatened with extinction and were resettled here again. Enjoy the unique opportunity to observe these animals at close range in the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. In addition, over 300 bird species call the area their home, including the special shoebill. Bwindi Rainforest and National Park

Bwindi Rainforest

In the southwest of Uganda, the Bwindi Rainforest is home to about half of all still living mountain gorillas. A hike to these rare animals is an absolute highlight on every Uganda trip and a very special experience. During such an excursion you will hike between two and six hours to the unique primates. On the way an expert ranger will tell you all kinds of interesting facts about the animal and plant world and of course about the gorillas and their way of life.  Less
